Gemini Saga & Kanon (双子座のサガとカノン) Although the Gemini Gold Cloth was worn first by Kanon’s twin brother Saga, it recognized both as Saints, as Kurumada explained in vol. 16 of his manga. As they were twins representing the Gemini constellation, both Kanon and Saga were the Gemini Gold Saint, and both were rightful bearers of the Gemini Gold Cloth.
In Greek mythology, Gemini was associated with the myth of Castor and Pollux, the children of Leda and Argonauts both. Pollux was the son of Zeus, who seduced Leda, while Castor was the son of Tyndareus, king of Sparta and Leda’s husband. When Castor died, because he was mortal, Pollux begged his father Zeus to give Castor immortality, and he did, by uniting them together in the heavens.

Scorpio Kardia (蠍座のカルディア) His name means “heart” in Greek (καρδία) and is the only other known Saint apart from Libra Dohko and Aquarius Krest to receive Misopethamenos. He had a heart condition that only gave him one more year of life. He ran away from the hospital and met Aquarius Krest, who offered him first Athena’s blood and then Misopethamenos to extend his life and allow him more time to live the way he wanted.
Kardia’s goal was always to live and die to the fullest and was able to do so when he battled Wyvern Radamanthys in Atlantis. His unique version of both Scarlet Needle and Antares (Katakeo - to incinerate) infuses heat into the wounds and heart of the enemy.
Teshirogi Shiori mentioned in an interview he likes apples and eats them frequently (shown also in his Gaiden) because Degel told him it was healthy. This is a direct reference to Scorpio Milo, who’s name can be translated to “apple” in Greek.
